Club 3000 have invested over £2 million in the Wigan club, creating a luxury venue with 1,000 free parking spaces and 40 jobs, helping to boost the local economy. The new, large and modern club will have so much to offer, from the sports bar and arcade to the catering. It will also host the largest interactive screen in bingo. With nine 9 clubs in the region, Club 3000 have extensive knowledge of the local marketplace and are delighted to be adding Wigan to their portfolio of clubs.

Brian Fraser, founder of Club 3000 Bingo said: “We are delighted to extend our portfolio of clubs to 21 and bring the Club 3000 Bingo brand to Wigan this summer. This is a great venue and community, and we are excited to offer customers a fabulous bingo experience in a first-class, modern and secure environment. We promise something special to look forward to – both for regular bingo lovers and new customers.

“The completely refurbished club will not only offer bingo lovers a fantastic new experience but also bring much-needed jobs to the local area especially during this very challenging time”.

The membership shop is open in the centre of Wigan where the team are led by Karen Gilligan, the new general manager of the club. Karen started her bingo career in 1997, working as a Trainee Manager in a club in Huyton, Liverpool. Working her way through the ranks she quickly moved up to Support Manager in Bootle, Huntscross, Walkden, Middleton and Didsbury, before being promoted to General Manager in 2001, working mainly in Liverpool and then Walkden, Manchester in 2017.

Karen Gilligan said: “When I heard Brian (our owner) had purchased Wigan, I was the first to put my name down, being from Bolton. It was an ideal location to give me that “Grand Opening” of a club experience as a GM, which I have never done. I feel it’s my time for a challenge and can’t wait to welcome customers through our doors in Wigan.”
